A History of the Concept of Knowledge
AbstractThe paper discusses the relationship of concept of work and concept of knowledge. It attempts to give an outline of such a history. The guiding thread throughout the history of the concept of knowledge has been ‘linguisticness’, the ways in which we were able to recognise or express cognition in language. Over past centuries incredible emphasis has been placed on understanding knowledge as allowing the facts to take the floor, letting them speak for themselves. With a social system that increasingly bases itself on the fact that more and more of those who supply a contribution to value generation in society also do so by producing and handling knowledge, changes to this are being made.
